Forecast: Mild June Continues, Sunny But Cool Weekend Ahead

A lot of clouds are in the forecast for today as we sit between storm systems.  A cold front is going to slip through overnight and could bring a spot shower. That is the extent of any rain for the weekend; there is increasing sunshine ahead.

If you are wondering where the warm air is, you’ll have to go very far to the south to find it. While we'll see more in the way of sunshine this weekend, it’s still not going to be very warm. Even without the warm air, the sun is just as strong. The amount of ultraviolet light is at its yearly peak in June, so don’t let the cooler air fool you — you can still get very burned in a short period of time.

The onshore flow of air will continue all weekend, meaning coastal locations will be coolest. Highs won’t reach the 70 mark until you get west of Route 128 this weekend, and even then it will only be in the lower 70s, which is actually pretty typical for early June.

Next week, the airflow looks to become more westerly. This will keep the cooler ocean air out to sea and allow temperatures to rise to above seasonal averages. There could be a round of showers preceding the warmer air Monday night or Tuesday morning.

Have a great weekend.

Friday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 70 inland 60s at the coast.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high in the lower 70s cooler at the coast.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 70, cooler at the beaches.

Monday: Increasingly cloudy highs in the lower 70s, late day showers possible.

Tuesday: Clouds with a few showers possible and chance of a thunderstorm. Highs in the 70s.
